How to download:
New to Metallic Logos Megapack?
Now if you're new to these logos and have never tried them before, you just need to download the Torrent file.
Already have Metallic Logos Megapack from FM11?
If you have been using the logos and are up to date then you just need the Update Pack 1, updated FM12 Flag pack and the new Trophies which are in the links below.
The Trophy is Gold by default, but I have made a Silver and White one as well, so just rename each picture depending on which one you choose to have.
- FM12 Metallic Flags - 7,3 MB
- FM12 Metallic Trophies - 0,08 MB
- Update Pack 1 - 380 MB
- Update Pack 2 - 73 MB
- Update Pack 3 - 95 MB
- Update Pack 4 - 71 MB
- Update Pack 5 - 142 MB
- Update Pack 6 - 166 MB
- Update Pack 7 - 132 MB

How to install:
Extract all downloaded parts individually to the same temporary folder.
In order to extract you will need either 7-Zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac.
Cut and paste the extracted folder to:
Win Vista/Windows 7: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\graphics\
Win 2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\graphics\
Win 98/ME: C:\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\graphics\
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/graphics/
Create folder "graphics" if it doesn't exist already.
If you already have the pack from FM11 and only downloaded the updated flag and the new trophies instead of the torrent:
Tranfer your existing FM11 logo folder into your FM12 folder, and extract Update Pack 1 to bring your pack in line with the full FM12 Torrent version. Before you install this update you must rename your Metallic Logos FM11 folder if you have not done so already.
So if your install filepath looks like this:
Football Manager 2012\graphics\logos\Metallic Logos FM11, change the 11 into 12 so that the configs and logos overwrite and update correctly.
All you are downloading are the Logos, Flags and other Metallic logo associated files so dont worry about anything else being overwritten.
Run Football Manager 2012 and go to: Preferences > Display and Sound
Make sure that you tick the check box on the page called 'Always Reload Skin on Confirm' and un-tick then box saying 'Use Skin Cache'. Hit Confirm.
There should be a box that pops up saying 'loading image data for the new skin'. Once this is done your graphics should be working within the game.

Thanks to kremmen (@ SortItOutSI / @ SI forums) for creating this!
It's not easy to do all this on your own, so I'm glad of the help provided by these guys:
- Schweigi - one of my inspirations for getting into this gfx lark in the first place, and provider of many of the base logos. If you don't like Metallics he makes arguably the best Standard Logos out there.
- VfB1893 - great guy for resources which is the most time consuming part of the process.
- oguzkazan - has started making these himself and has made the new Turkish ones in the pack.
- Willz71772 and all the other guys who keep posting for posting new ones up on the forums.
- weltfussballarchiv.com, Wappen.de, Football11.net and all the other great resource site
- Too many others to mention, but thanks to everyone who posts up resources - keep 'em coming lads.
